If you are meaning why are African counties LEDC's (Less economically developed county) it could be as they are just not as well off as other countries.

How the leaders run the country, the trades importing and exporting of foods, materials, clothing, etc. Also the weather as there is little rain, the crops wont survive to their full potential.

Why was the African iron age different from that of other regions?

The African Iron Age was different from other regions because it developed independently, without influence from other societies. African ironworking techniques were developed locally and spread throughout the continent, leading to unique styles and technologies. Additionally, the availability of materials and environmental factors played a significant role in shaping the African Iron Age.

Is neocolonialism the source of African countries being underdeveloped?

Neocolonialism is certainly a part of the reason that African countries are underdeveloped. The exploitation of Africa's resources by wealthy foreign businesses (European, American, Chinese, and Russian) prevents the governments and peoples of these countries from properly profiting from these resources themselves. However, neocolonialism is not the only reason for African country's underdevelopment. Some other very important reasons are: internal corruption within African governments, ethnic and tribal disputes, low levels of national unity, infrastructure failures, lack of industrial development, poor allocation of foreign AID money, and high tariffs and non-tariff barriers on African products in developed countries and/or subsidies for domestically-produced equivalents in developed countries that shut out African competitors.
